IO2 SHIPPING PRACTICE hours for reporting, the Collector of Customs may on receiving a request in writing, allow bulk to be broken, prior to report being lodged. This permission, however, does not relieve the ship from its responsibility of reporting within the stipulated period of 24 hours. In the case of a steamer sailing outwards, the procedure is reversed. The master must obtain a shipping bill for stores, and present to the Custom House a report of the cargo he is carrying outwards within six days. He must also produce the light dues receipt, and his clean bill of health before the clearance is obtained. The master must on entry, but not clearance, attend the Customs House in person and produce his papers, which include the ship's register. The documents required for Clearance are— Register Victualling bill Load line certificate Master's declaration Wireless certificate Pilotage receipt Light bill For coastwise without stores— Jerque note Application is then made to the pilot to see the ship clear from the waters of the port.
